Black Mirror takes its name from the devices used by witches for divination but also refers to all that is hidden and shadowy in the psyche. Taking references from the expressionist film 'Nosferatu' and from paintings of Mary Magdalene, Black Mirror delves into the self in an endless hall of mirrors. This solo is a further continuity of Marie-Gabrielle’s interest in the theme of transformation and her research into a trans-personal iconography to represent female desire and eroticisms.
